IMDEA Materials Institute is looking for post-doctoral researchers willing to apply for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Postdoctoral Fellowships (PF) in call 2021. IMDEA Materials Institute has a long track record of hosting MSCA fellows and has obtained outstanding success rates in recent calls of MSCA PF.
Interested candidates (if successful) will work under the supervision of Dr. Jennifer Patterson, head of the Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine group at IMDEA Materials Institute. The candidate will work in materials development for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. Candidates with specific interest and experience in hydrogel chemistry, biofabrication/bioprinting, biological characterization of 3D tissue constructs, and/or computational materials design are particularly encouraged to make contact. The aim is to develop a proposal that merges the interests and experience of the candidate with the goals and expertise of the research group. The Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine group at IMDEA Materials bridges research on fundamental materials chemistry through processing to in vitro and in vivo testing of novel approaches to regenerate damaged or diseased tissues for a variety of biological applications. IMDEA Materials Institute has new facilities to perform cell culture as well as extensive facilities for materials synthesis and characterization (including thermal and mechanical testing, SEM, TEM, etc.).
HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST:
Interested candidates please send your resume and a brief outline of the proposed research project (2 pages maximum) via email to Dr. Jennifer Patterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) before July 15th 2021.
DESCRIPTION OF THE MSCA POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS:
The purpose of the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA PF) is to enhance the creative and innovative potential of researchers holding a PhD, wishing to acquire new skills through advanced training and international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral mobility. The grant typically covers two years' salary, research costs and overheads for the host institution.
The mobility rule requires that the researcher has not resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in the country of their host organization (Spain, in the case of IMDEA Materials Institute) for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline (expected to be October 12th 2021 for call 2021). Moreover, only candidates with research experience up to 8 years postdoc from the date the PhD degree was granted are eligible (with possible exceptions).
